New Orleans - CBS College Sports Network has announced that it will televise the conference matchup between Tulane and Houston on Saturday, November 8. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. CST at Robertson Stadium in Houston. The game is the first in a series of four 12-day advance selections that CBS College Sports will have for Saturday games in November.
The game will be aired live on Cox Cable of New Orleans, Channel 315, Dish Network, Channel 152 and DirecTV, Channel 613.
Tulane (2-4 overall, 1-2 in C-USA play) is led by the conference's top-ranked defense and junior running back Andre Anderson on offense. Anderson has done a fine job replacing Matt Forte', who now stars for the Chicago Bears, rushing for more than 100 yards in four straight outings, including a pair of 200-plus-yard games. The contest will make the Wave's second game on CBS College Sports of the year and its seventh television game this season.
Houston is currently undefeated in C-USA play at 3-0 and is 4-3 overall, having won three straight games. Cougar sophomore QB Case Keenum leads the nation in total offense (407.9 ypg), ranks second in passing yards (384.4 ypg) and fourth in TD passes (23).
Houston leads the all-time series, 9-4, and won last season's matchup in New Orleans, 34-10.
The game will be the second in a Conference USA doubleheader on CBS College Sports on November 8. At 3:30 p.m. EST, CBS C will televise the East Division showdown between Marshall and East Carolina from Greenville, N.C.
